Policeman to face death over armed robbery

15 January 2015, 18:56 Victor Tinto

Nairobi - A policeman will face the death penalty for violently robbing a Nairobi businessman.

Gilbert Chemosi, a constable with the Kenya Police force was sent to the hangman by Nairobi chief magistrate Hannah Mumbi over a robbery in which he stole KES 90,000 from Chrisphine Otieno Odongo.

The incident took place on June 25, 2012 along Bandari Road in Nairobi’s Industrial Area, shortly after Otieno withdrew the said amount of money from a nearby bank.

Chremosi's co-accused George Kamau Ndogo, who is not a policeman was however acquitted by the court as there was no direct evidence linking him to the offence.

Otieno positively pointed out Chemosi in court and the magistrate said that the haste and precision with which the accused was identified was a key reason why the court had chosen to find Chemosi guilty.

Chemosi on his part had argued that he did not leave his workstation on the said day and that he was in no position to commit the offence, a scenario which the court ruled out as insufficient to acquit him of the charge.

Chemosi was also incriminatingly in uniform while committing the offence.
